Insurance agents actively represent the interests of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKO) and act as service partners responsible for optimising legislative and work-specific framework conditions for entrepreneurs. Their tasks include the preparation of laws and training questions for insurance agents and the optimisation of checklists for persons interested in taking up the profession. We would like to thank STRYME and especially Goce Zdravkoski, MBA, CEO and founder of STRYME and TUBICON and Clemens Czepe, CTO and co-founder for preparing the nine-hour-long video material. We are proud of our collaboration with this company, which thanks to the app TUBICON developed by them has enabled us and will continue to enable us to produce training content for webinars and various training and educational initiatives available for use by around 10000 insurance agents. Karl Weisz, chair and trained economist representing the insurance agents at the Vienna Economic Chamber (WKW) and Ing. Paul Eichberger, deputy chair, were on location when the video was shot and were able to follow the live production with the app TUBICON and impart detailed information on how the product works during an interview with Mr Zdravkoski.

From our office in downtown Austin, Texas, there is a clear and often meditative view of the popular Lady Bird Lake and Trail, where on most days, you find hundreds of people enjoying the water or the trail. As Covid-19 began to permeate into Texas, it was like a valve suddenly shut off -- the people disappeared. State and local governments issued lockdown orders. We sent our employees home. Our clients cleared out their newsrooms, production facilities and studios. Journalists began reporting from their living rooms instead of broadcast centers. Todd Bynum, KXAN-TV’s Chief Photographer told me, “We made sure laptops had the latakoo app installed, then handed them out to our crews and said, ‘you’re not coming back here for a few months, use latakoo to send us your stories, latakoo will be your friend.”
The New-York based Buffalo Bills is an institution in the National Football League (NFL). Founded in 1959, the 4-time Super Bowl finalists boast one of the largest and most loyal fan bases in the league. Each week the Bills’ production team manages a 5-hour block of TV programming that covers game action, expert opinion and behind-the-scenes content. Accessing, editing and publishing this content for fans to enjoy had been laborious and slow using traditional editing systems. The team wanted an ultra-efficient cloud-based solution that would dramatically speed up their workflows and deliver content to fans much faster online. The Bills turned to Blackbird.
